Continuing with lessons ornaments have taught me:)
We were doing Disney characters so you could hear us, as we pulled out the first few pieces,lamenting the fact that Goofy's face looked like garbage because, unknown to us, one little speck of green had gotten mixed up with the beige colors. WE finally resorted to using tweezers to pick up the colored bits and often ended up in good-natured arguing as one or the other insisted that a speck of color had gone astray as we were dropping them in. We didn't do the things we had planned on doing that holiday but we actually had a great time and when the ice finally melted, we had made some neat memories. Memories that involved, like the Peanuts sun-catchers, a lot of time and patience.
